Information foraging in E-voting

Ravi K. Vatrapu, Scott P. Robertson
2009 Proceedings of the 27th international conference extended abstracts on Human factors in computing systems - CHI EA '09  
Interaction analysis of the case study data consisted of applying Information Foraging Theory to understand participant specific behaviors in searching and browsing.  ...  The case study consists of a participant observed while searching and browsing the internet for campaign information in a mock-voting situation while taking notes that were to be shared with others.  ...  S3 reported voting in only major elections and having voted in the US general election of 2004 but not in the midterm election of 2006.  ...

Under a neighbour's influence: public information affects stress hormones and behaviour of a songbird

J. M. Cornelius, C. W. Breuner, T. P. Hahn
2010 Proceedings of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
However, the physiological mechanisms by which direct foraging assessments and public information are integrated to affect behaviour remain largely unknown.  ...  Red crossbills are irruptive migrants that are considered sensitive to changes in food availability and use public information in decision making.  ...  Thus, in group A the majority vote is stay whereas in group B the majority vote is leave.  ...

Group decisions in humans and animals: a survey

L. Conradt, C. List
2009 Philosophical Transactions of the Royal Society of London. Biological Sciences  
It emerges that group decisions in animals pose many similar questions to those in humans.  ...  The purpose of the present issue is to integrate and combine approaches in the social and natural sciences in an area in which theoretical challenges and research questions are often similar, and to introduce  ...  Formally, S is evolutionarily stable if, for any T, either E(S, S)O E(T, S) or [E(S, S)ZE(T, S) and E(S, T)OE(T, T)], where E(A, B) is the pay-off of playing a strategy A against a strategy B.  ...

The challenge is how to use the information that does exist effectively. The method we have used is closest to vote-counting.  ...  However, instead of the repeated trials nature of vote-counting proving a problem (Hedges & Olkin 1980; Gurevitch & Hedges 1999), we have explicitly used it to inform us about the likelihood of species  ... 

Generic, scalable and decentralized fault detection for robot swarms

Danesh Tarapore, Anders Lyhne Christensen, Jon Timmis, Xiaosong Hu
2017 PLoS ONE  
In particular, we analyze our system's capacity to correctly detect robots with faults, false positive rates, performance in a foraging task in which each robot exhibits a composite behavior, and performance  ...  In this paper, we present a generic fault-detection system for robot swarms.  ...  The final feature vector for each observed robot is then updated by a simple majority vote on the most recently received feature-vector information in the past W l s, counting each voter only once.  ...

The Epistemology of Democracy

Markets respond primarily to price information; democratic states primarily to talk and votes.  ...
